Jazz at Lincoln Center presents Sing and Swing on February 23, 2024 at 7:30pm in YSU Ford Theater in Bliss Hall.
For over three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center, under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, has been a leading advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally. Jazz at Lincoln Center PRESENTS Sing and Swing celebrates the Great American Songbookin all of its playful—and sophisticated—glory, brought to life by two of this generation’s brightest stars. Each armed with prodigious trumpet talent and vocal charm, Bria Skonberg and Benny Benack III will relive and re-imagine some of the classic partners in jazz and popular song, including Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Bing Crosby, and Dean Martin and Peggy Lee. Featuring songs by Gershwin, Ellington, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and many more, and joined by a who’s who of New York all-stars, this is an “unforgettable” evening of singin’ and swingin’ with Bria and Benny.
